After a long wait, BTS‘ Jungkook has finally pinned down a release date for his digital single “Seven.”
Jungkook of K-pop sensation BTS will release a solo single on July 14, 2023, his label Big Hit Music announced in a post on the WeVerse app last June 29, 2023.
Big Hit described “Seven” as “an invigorating summer song that is sure to have you experience the full breadth of Jungkook’s charm.”
“We hope that ‘Seven’ will bring your summer fun to the next level,” the company told fans.
“As Jungkook kicks off his official solo activities, we ask you to extend your utmost anticipation and support for his digital single and many other activities to come,” it added.
